Solid Kernel offering, on tap at the Old Fountain, although they had it down as 7.2% rather than 6% (error? Didn’t taste mega strong).

Niall73 (2177) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2013
On tap at CBC Brixton. Pours a head yellow gold with a thin white head and some visible fine carbonation. Aroma is elderflower, piss, lychee, passion fruit, lemon, grass. Light body, foamy. Fresh, crisp with Elderflower, lemonade, mango, a hint of candy, a touch of veggie earthiness, finishes with a touch of bitter grapefruit, but its subtle. So well balanced, complex. It's really nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ErkkiH (6) - - SEP 15, 2013 does not count
Pours with a rich, thick, sea shore-like head. Color is a delicious light amber. Aroma is an explosion of fruit and hop. Amazing taste, full of tropical fruit. Refreshing, slighly sweet, moderately hoppy. Crisp palate with a soft carbonation. Nice, extremely long finish.

gunnar (6200) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle from a trade with madmitc76. Pours almost clear golden with a big creamy stable white head. Aroma is citrus and oranges with a good malty body underneath. Taste is all about the hops, fresh and juicy orange, light sweet marmelade at the rear, dry and bitter mouthfeel, lovely lingering juicy citrus.

chimpgibbon (410) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle from Cornelius 330ml @5%. 3 months since bottling so not in prime condition, but still a lovely IPA from Kernel. Tangerine and pineapple right through this hazy gold number. tartness on the end to balance it. Just great.

Cask at Inn Deep Glasgow. Bloody hell, this is a glorious ale... Absolutely delicious! Cloudy orange body, sweet citrusy aroma with malty tones, very wet taste, lovely wild fruit taste with a dry crisp finish. Again, absolutely delicious!

Bottle from The Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.20, 330ml):
Hoppy with plenty of pine and citrus notes to begin with, there is also a nice helping tropical notes along with some grapefruit, orange with some background caramel malts.
Cloudy, dark golden amber colour with a lot of sediment at the bottom of the bottle as well as in the glass. There is a pinky sized, foamy white head that holds very well.
Pine hops with some grapefruit and plenty of tropical fruits but it’s not quite as bitter as I was expecting from the smell. There is some sweetness and the caramel malts are more pronounced here but they still remain in the background throughout. More citrus and orange towards the end.
Smooth with a light medium body. As expected the beer is very bitter and full of citrus that gives it a nice tang towards the end and overall it has a nice balance with a crisp finish.

Another fine beer from The Kernel, this is the reason I pick up their beers any chance I get. This one looks fantastic and smells great too with a lot of tropical fruits and bitter pine hops to start off with.
